A Lovely Wet FNwF...

Oh nothing like clouds & rain to encourage staying in & doing some stitching!
 Thanks Cheryll for hosting us once again for this lovely cyber-party of stitchy friends.

This month for FNwF, I took my opportunity to sew the binding on my 'Sunshine & Daisies' quilt... I always love this stage of quilt-making... & I have even remembered to make a label for it too!
This quilt is not what I would call my 'usual style' but it's been very good for my soul & I do love it.
 
Being the slow binder that I am, I know what I will be doing in the evenings of the coming week ;)

It's easy to forget that not everyone in our neighbourhood of blogland is familiar with FNwF... so if you want to know more about Friday Night With Friends, you can find all the info you need if you just click here. The more the merrier!

I'm sending love & best wishes to all the Mum's out there... we're such a diverse bunch... & equally diverse in the ways we mother... & in WHO we mother.
While many of us have the blessing of our own children (whatever age they are now!), many of us also parent ... grandchildren, step-children, foster children, extended family members.
When I spend treasured time with my 3, I'm all too aware that not all Mothers have their kids around them... & that many people do not have their Mothers.
I salute you and send blessings to you all.

Somehow I always manage to miss FNwF! Isn't it a lovely feeling to be putting on the binding. I machined the binding on to my Dear Jane this afternoon, in a break from gardening, and am looking forward to getting it stitched down this week. xx

Hand sewing the binding is very therapeutic and a sure sign that you have made a lot of progress.

It's bucketing down here at the moment and very noisy on the roof. Perfect stitching day. Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day.

How wonderful to be at the binding stage of your quilt! I lost my enthusiasm for quilts the last few years while I had nowhere to really be able to lay things out - perhaps that will begin to change now we have the house to ourselves

I always enjoy binding a quilt means it is complete!
Can be a bit sad if it's one I have really enjoyed working on.
Enjoy
